  1. The Toyota Mirai will remain a concept car. It took Toyota, from what I’ve read, 23 years to bring to its present state. The only reason why anyone would consider leasing it for three years is the “feel good” it may bring and free fuel–yeah, Toyota foots the bill for the first three years. Building a hydrogen fuel infrastructure for the masses “ain’t gonna happen”. Electricity is the way to go and the car maker who started that was Tesla as they made electric cars cool and bad a$$ with Insane mode, Ludicrous mode and now Super Ludicrous mode!
